PSU has 750 Watts power - so can rule that out.

Strange...

Have you up-dated all your Win7 updates, including the optionals?

Might update the sound drivers just for giggles, pretty old.

Runnin' out of ideas here....

Ok, one last thing:

Does your video card require a power plug?, couldn't find that in my researching, if so unplug it and reinsert to make sure there is a solid connection.

When you boot up your system, look for the key to hold down to enter your BIOS setting. I would suspect that your BIOS has a section for your onboard hardware like an ethernet, sound, graphics and that you may need to instruct your system to look to the PCI slot first for your new card and turn off the onboard chipset. I remember having issues when I got my first dedicated graphics card because the BIOS was set to use the onboard. See if this fixes it for ya!

Looking at your Dxdiag, I can see that you havn't updated to Service Pack 1 for Windows 7. That might be causing a problem installing the driver, so I'd take that step next.

hope this helps!

Greetings Cleosly,

I just want to confirm what JustARandomGuy said, you should definitely use Windows Update to install all important updates including the optional updates for C++ Redistributables and .Net Framework.

Hope you get your new card working.

I'll second the power plug...I'm guessing that card, in addition to being plugged into the MB also needs to be plugged in to your power supply. Also, make sure to plug your monitor in to the card, rather than the integrated graphics (sorry if this is elementary; just don't know your tech level).

Good/Bad News
Not very good with tech

I managed to download the new drivers (after the downlaoding service pack) and managed to get starwars up and running at 12 at night it all worked fine.

Then the next morning when I tried to start it, but it stopped and made a beeping sound as it has done countlessly before and now the computer won't start up and I'm back to square one . I will try everythihng else but I ll probably just send it to novatech to get fixed (I really really hate Technology now)

PS: Blue Screen Came Up Again

A Problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer
........If this is the first time blah blah blah

Check with you hardware vendor for any BIOS updates.
